One of Top Seven Most Beautiful - Danxia in China

"One of Top Seven Most Beautiful, Danxia in China" Ranked by China National Geography Magazine.Danxia Mountain in Renhua County, Shaoguan City of Guangdong Province: China's red stone park.Danxia Mountain, located in Renhua County, Guangdong Province, with its walls and tiers of red rocks and cliffs, like Danxia (red rays of the sun), from which its name derives, has been compared to a ruby sculpture park. It is known as ''China's Red Stone Park''.Danxia landform's rock walls and cliffs are formed of red sandstone and conglomerate. Research shows that about 100 million years ago, there used to be a huge inland basin here. Water carried silt from the surrounding mountains to the basin. As the result of global high temperatures the basin dried up and in these arid conditions the sediment oxidized and turned rust color. Then some 70 million years ago a 3,700-meter-thick red-colored layer formed on the basin, known as the chalk bed. On the top, there was a 1,300-meter-thick solid layer, i.e., layer of Cretaceous system, from which the peaks of Danxia Mountain gradually took shape.
